    First off i just want to comment on what an amazing bass player tony levon is. 2 things: first, does anyone know what song he uses those mallets on his fingers for? And what do you people think about the differences, if any, from when he played with king crimson and with peter gabriel?

    Never heard of him.;)
  3. Punk, I thought Levon played for The Band. He was the drummer.

    If you do a search on "Tony Levin" you will get results on the bald dude with the drum sticks on his fingers.:D

    I have a pair of his "funk fingers". Those things rock, and unfortunately aren't that easy to use with faster syncopations as Tony Levin uses.
